My Story

I grew up in a small town in Ontario, Canada. I accepted the Lord as my Saviour at 7 and knew God was calling me to be a missionary at 13. After preparation at Prairie, I joined TEAM and served my first 26 years in Venezuela in church planting and administrative roles. After that I was involved in church planting in Piura, Peru for four years. I am currently in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. It is interesting that this is where I was originally going to begin my missionary career!

Ministry Focus:

I’m involved with the El Faro Church plant and I get to put my gifts and talents to use primarily in Bible teaching, organizing events, small group ministry, and developing the audio-visual ministry!

Primary Prayer Request:

To know God and serve Him well.
